What Is Emergency Room Malpractice?
Just because you were treated in an emergency room and had a bad outcome does not mean that your health care provider committed malpractice. Sometimes doctors do everything they are supposed to do and the patient still suffers a negative outcome. To have a case, there must be substantial injury and evidence that physicians, nurses or emergency room staff deviated from the accepted standard of care.
Examples of emergency room malpractice include:
- Failure to diagnose heart attack
- Failure to properly insert or monitor breathing tubes
- Failure to order proper tests for diagnosis of illness or injury
- Discharging a patient while he or she still needs medical attention
- Medication errors
- Failure to obtain a medical history
